    In my opinion, I think a good friend is always there for you. They genuinely care about you, they are willing to help you, and they go out of their way to do kind things for you. You should reciprocate these things back as well.

    A good friend is one who checks up on you without asking, listens to you rant, and gives you space when you need it.

    A good friend is dependable and someone that you can trust and easily get along with. They’re someone that makes you feel like you could be your true and genuine self without getting judged. A good and decent friend will put in the effort for you, understand you, and help you when you need it.

    A good friend is always there for you and will pay attention. You are always comfortable around them. They will never desert you for anything else.

    A good friend understands you. They will listen if you have a problem. Good friends will never betray you and always have your back. They should accept you for who you are and be a person you feel comfortable being around.

    What makes a good friend is paying attention to them, sometimes some people can get off track during conversations and it can seem like you don’t care for them. Being kind to one another is also a great quality for being a friend, making sure they feel safe around you and making sure that you are not invalidating their feelings.
